Howdy gang!

Say... Has anyone else noticed how useless transmuting iron to gold or mithril to truesilver is? :bonk:

gold doesn't sell for much more than iron, and the same can be said for truesilver vs mithril

And that 2 day cooldown time? Yeeha! What were they thinking?

There I was, all cooled out after getting all the mats to make my philosopher's stone, making my philosopher's stone and thinking: "neato! I have a philosopher's stone! Maybe I can do something cool with it!"...


Pandie :crazy:

Yep, noticed that. However, I bought it small stack of Mithril and every 2 days I get to sell a Truesilver bar to recoup my costs and an easy skill up without chasing around picking flowers.

Yep, arcanite transmute is the only one worth while, and its 48 hours too :(

I've been slacking on my alchemy. I know there are a few transmute recipe's in Tanaris but im just trying to verify, is that where we get all of our transmutes?
